The Terrace Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne Events & Parties
Birthdays, bridal showers, Christmas parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and more are all welcome at The Terrace, the Royal Botanic Garden’s function centre, but you don’t need the excuse of a special occasion to gather with your loved ones. However, when you’re looking for venues to play host to a truly exceptional celebration, The Terrace is the perfect spot.

Working with events management and catering team Blakes Feast, all of your needs will be taken care of.
BYO is welcomed, and inhouse bar staff are available to serve. External caterers must be approved by The Terrace staff before your event.
Through the floor-to-ceiling windows is the terrace, an outdoor area that overlooks the beautiful Ornamental Lake. Home to many species of native wildlife, your guests will enjoy the sweeping views of the lawns and manicured gardens.

Right from the our very first enquiry, we have had exceptional service from everybody at The Terrace. We appreciated the flexibility that was offered to help us achieve our vision. Everything seemed to run so smoothly and nothing was too much effort for the staff. The food was exceptional!

The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The communication was really great. We were able to go in and set things up a few days before the wedding which we found really helpful. There were lots of different options on how we could set up the room which was great.
